‘Completing the Picture’ in Oldbury

With a large range and number of services available for children, young people and families in Sandwell, it’s often difficult to keep on top of who’s who and what they do.

You may feel you are often left trying to find the missing pieces when looking for that little bit of extra support for the young people and families you are working with.

Sandwell Early Help Partnership is running an event at Krunch, Sandwell Christian Centre, Langley Crescent, Oldbury B68 8EW on Friday, 3 April, 10 am to 12 noon. It is hoped the occasion will bring together organisations, services and schools from Oldbury, and provide an opportunity for members and prospective members to:

– Engage with others.
– Find out what services are available locally.
– Build new partnerships.
– Share ideas of how to best support children, young people and families.

If you work in Oldbury, and would like to ‘Complete the Picture’ about what support services are available, book your place now by clicking here or email earlyhelp@scvo.info.

Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.


Can You Help Mesty Croft Allotments?

Mesty Croft Allotments are wondering if there’s anyone out there who might be able to help them with some ‘building’ requirements?

They’re looking for some roofing materials to construct a roof on their steel-structure gazebo, together with  an outdoor-type table(s) – for example, like a wooden picnic table (or similar).

If you’re able to help, then let us know and we’ll put you in touch with the relevant person at the allotments – ‘thank you’.
